The Eliasberg Collection has long stood as the pinnacle of privately-held US coin collections. With the advent of the Set Registry, a new challenger emerged with the goal to not only add over 50 years to the collection, but to eclipse it in terms of condition. This is DLRC's story of how it has worked with the D.L. Hansen Collection and the quest for the greatest collection of US coins.
